National Day and Liberation
Day of Kuwait
year, we are celebrating Kuwait’s 61st National Day and 31st
Liberation Day. Kuwait independence was declared on June 19, 1961. The
National Day is followed on the 25th of February since 1961. This
time it is 61st year of celebration. Every year (since 1991) aside from
the National Day, Kuwait also celebrates Liberation Day every 26th of
National Day and Liberation of Kuwait are celebrated
at Kuwait National English School. KNES conducts flag raising ceremonies, singing
of the National Anthem and cultural events. Students perform various activities
in the event. Our campus is adorned with flags and strings of lights. It is
also a special day when we all get together to thank and remember our great
freedom fighters who fought to ensure that we have a free Kuwait in honour of the
country’s independence from Iraq after the first Gulf War.
Isra and Mi’raj:
The Isra’ and Mi’raj are
the two parts of a Night Journey that
the Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) (570–632) took during a single night around the
year 621. In the Isra’ part of the journey, Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh)
travelled on the back of the winged steed Buraq to Al-Aqsa Mosque where he
leads other Prophets in prayer. In the next part of the journey, the Mi'raj,
Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) ascends into heaven where he individually greets the Prophets
and later, speaks to God, who gives Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh) instructions to
take back to the Muslims regarding the details of prayer.
